Michael Moore, the famously liberal filmmaker known for Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, recently admitted on Bill Maher’s show, Real Time, that he believes that Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton in the general election. Moore even has a 5-point message on his website detailing how and why he feels Trump’s win is an almost certainty.
California’s Democratic Governor Jerry Brown reportedly said that the presidential election is looking very grim and that he’s “very uncertain,” while also acknowledging that Hillary Clinton should be deeply concerned.
When Brown arrived at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, he said about recent national polls conducted that the race between Donald Trump and Clinton is, “very tight, very tight.”
Brown continued in his logical thinking — when he was asked directly if he was nervous about the polling numbers, he said, “of course!” Brown proceeded to explain, “You think she isn’t? It’s very uncertain at this point and very threatening. Full alert, I would say.”
Hillary’s own campaign manager, Robby Mook, was also nervous about the most recent polling numbers when he wrote in a fundraising email, “Poll after poll is showing that Trump has been eating away at our lead, and after his convention, he’s erased it entirely.”
The most recent CNN/ORC poll found that Clinton is trailing Trump by 5 percent, which also includes the Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
It’s quite obvious that the Democrat Party is terrified. They thought they had this locked up in an airtight bag.
Mook echoed this fear by warning the rest of the campaign that the next few weeks are critical and said, “with the polls leaning in the wrong direction, your contribution has never been more critical.”
Jerry Brown continued in his grief and frustration by saying that the GOP convention was “boisterous, bitter, and hostile.”
Clearly, a majority of the country disagrees with Brown’s assessment because the polling numbers sing a very different tune.
What’s even worse for the DNC is that a CNN/ORC poll released Monday showed that Clinton trailed by an 11-point margin, with people thinking Trump would better handle the economy, which is the most important issue of this election. They also thought that Trump would respond to terrorist attacks by an identical margin.
To add fuel to the ongoing Democrat fire, Bernie Sanders supporters are reportedly furious at Sanders for selling out to his party and caving in. They refuse to vote for Hillary — a vote for Trump — or it’s a vote for the Green or Libertarian Parties, which is also a vote for Trump.
Brown finished while crying, “this business of the hatred and the extreme passion and intensity reflects deep fissures in the American people.”
The Democrats are scared, and that’s a good sign.
